Boromir would have been -37 years old, but Aragorn... [In reply to] Can't Post

According to Tolkien himself and his works Boromir wasn't born at the time of The Hobbit. The BOFA took place in 2941 T.A. and Boromir was born in 2978 (37 years later). But Aragorn (who was born in 2931) was almost 10 years old when Bilbo and the dwarves came to Rivendell.

I really hope to see a 10 year old boy running around in Rivendell during AUJ and Elrond calling him "Estel". Just this small reference... would be cool! Fans of the books would notice it and identify him as Aragorn and for the common audience he would be just a boy running around in Rivendell.

Fan of the movies will not be so happy... and that's an euphemism. [In reply to] Can't Post

Aragorn would be around 26, according to PJ timeline. So seeing him as a 10 year old child would make no sense, unless we discover a nice subplot of Aragorn suffering from some strange disease...
Again, I've said it countless times: make the gap between LOTR and AUJ 80 years, because I too would like to see a young Aragorn in Rivendell...

How about a compromise? [In reply to] Can't Post

When Bilbo first visits Rivendell in the first movie, they could show a 10 year old kid that Elrond calls "Estel". Passing through Rivendell on the way back again in the third movie, there could be a 26-year-old man that Elrond also calls "Estel" and then Galadriel could comment that, "they grow up so fast."

Aragorn's birthday was on March 1. He was most definitely 10 years old when the company arrived in Rivendell. The complication lies in the continuity of the films, where it seems that Aragorn could have been much older than that (between ages 25 to 27 by most reckonings). This is a long-debated subject.

Hang on... [In reply to] Can't Post

... I'm just trying to do the math without the appendices at hand.
So it basically comes down to that one comment in the movies, when Aragorn tells Eowyn that he's 80something, right? That would make him 20something at the time of "The Hobbit". But then again, I remember Denethor died at 80something and he was just one year Aragorn's senior. So that would work with the 20something Aragorn. Yet everybody says Aragorn should be ten. What is it I'm missing?

17 years... ;-) [In reply to] Can't Post

In the books, Frodo does not leave The Shire until 17 years after Bilbo's 111th birthday party. PJ cut that time period from the movies.

It is as Eleniel says... [In reply to] Can't Post

Evidence for:

- Jackson makes Sam, Merry and Pippin into Frodo's contemporaries. In the book, they would have all still been children at the time of Bilbo's birthday party.

- Jackson dropping all of the elaborate arrangements about Frodo leaving the Shire, including the conspiracy and his purchasing of the house in Crickhollow.

- Nothing in Jackson's FotR to indicate any great passage of time to the audience.

On the passage of time [In reply to] Can't Post

On my most recent viewing of FotR I was thinking about this, and realized that just because PJ didn't explicitly point out that 17 years had passed (which for all accounts and purposes would have lessened the weight of danger the ring had in the movie, especially new audiences who would just think, "well if its been sitting around for 17 years why not just leave it where it is") he doesn't say it didn't happen either. My solution, for those of us who know the chronology, the 17 year gap did happen and the movie only shows brief highlights of that period.

Well, besides the obvious contradiction, in which... [In reply to] Can't Post

...we still have Samwise, Merry and Pippin being too close in age to Frodo. Their appearances should be reflected in the passage of 17 years, even if Frodo's is not (due to the effects of the Ring).

There is also Walsh, Boyens and Jackson in their commentary track on the extended edition of FotR, discussing this specific compression of time.

Yes, you can choose to ignore the paradox represented by Frodo's hobbit companions, but it is still there.
